No log VPN for ultimate digital privacy

  • Make sure your ISP has no access to your browsing history
  • Secure your browsing from any prying eyes
No Logs VPN

What does no log VPN mean?

A VPN that doesn’t keep logs will not collect details like:

  • IP address
  • Browsing history
  • Used bandwidth
  • Session information
  • Network traffic
  • Connection timestamps

In short, a no log VPN like Surfshark does not keep track of your online whereabouts or actions in any way.

How do other VPNs compare?

What does it mean for you? 

  • Country of jurisdiction is important to make sure that the local laws actually allow not collecting logs
  • RAM-only servers allow for improved privacy, since they are fully wiped when turned off 
  • Independent security audit ensures more transparency from your provider – and proves they prioritize security
  • Obfuscation means that your ISP (or anyone else, for that matter) cannot tell you’re using a VPN

Stay private from your ISP

Did you know that your ISP (Internet Service Provider) can see all the websites you visit & the torrents you download?

Most ISPs are required to store this information for years – and in the US, they can legally sell (anonymized) information like this. Even if you feel like there’s nothing you want to hide, it’s a huge breach of privacy.

It’s crucial to choose a VPN that does not keep any logs: even if your VPN provider is asked or subpoenaed to reveal your records, it will not work. They cannot give up information that never existed in the first place!

Don’t risk your ISP leaking personal information to third parties and go with a no logs VPN service.

FAQ

Does a zero log VPN exist?

The short answer is no, a zero log VPN does not exist.

In theory, it is possible to create such a VPN, however, it isn’t very feasible nor would it be very user friendly. Since some information is required to create user accounts, authenticate them, and for billing purposes, that would all have to be processed in the most anonymous ways that are currently available, e.g. only crypto payments.

Plus, some anonymized information is required in order to keep the applications running smoothly and fix issues (such as crash reports).
